Computer Science: Modeling, Engineering and Technology: Nanotechnology
The Nanoscience and Technology Division/Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM) at Argonne National Laboratory has an available postdoctoral position within the Theory and Modeling Group. The position is funded for one year with the possibility of extension to a second year (subject to performance evaluation).
The successful candidate will work on problems in quantum plasmonics, information and sensing. This work involves numerical and analytical analysis of the time evolution of quantum systems (e.g. semiconductor quantum dots and other excitonic systems or quantum materials) possibly in contact with plasmonic and other types of cavities and resonators. A solid understanding of quantum mechanics and electrodynamics, as well as good scientific programming skills, are advantageous. Interested candidates should send a detailed curriculum vitae including a list of publications and the names and addresses of three professional references through the Argonne web site at http://www.anl.gov/careers for requisition number NST 403342. The candidate should have or will receive shortly a Ph.D. in physics, chemistry or a related field. Applicants should not be beyond one year of receiving the Ph.D. For additional questions, please contact Dr. Stephen K. Gray (email@example.com).

Argonne is a multidisciplinary science and engineering research center, where talented scientists and engineers work together to answer the biggest questions facing humanity, from how to obtain affordable clean energy to protecting ourselves and our environment. Ever since we were born out of the University of Chicago’s work on the Manhattan Project in the 1940s, our goal has been to make an impact — from the atomic to the human to the global scale.
The laboratory works in concert with universities, industry, and other national laboratories on questions and experiments too large for any one institution to do by itself. Through collaborations here and around the world, we strive to discover new ways to develop energy innovations through science, create novel materials molecule-by-molecule, and gain a deeper understanding of our planet, our climate, and the cosmos.
Surrounded by the highest concentration of top-tier research organizations in the world, Argonne leverages its Chicago-area location to lead discovery and to power innovation in a wide range of core scientific capabilities, from high-energy physics and materials science to biology and advanced computer science.
At Argonne, we explore the world together in order to build a better one.
